Is your LG washing machine not working as it should? Before calling for service, there are a few things you can try to get the washer performing properly again. This guide will help identify common causes and provide tips for troubleshooting and repairing the issue.

The first step in troubleshooting an LG washing machine is to check the power source. Make sure the washer is plugged into a functioning outlet and that the outlet isn’t controlled by a switch. Additionally, check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers. If needed, replace the fuse or reset the breaker and try again.

Your LG washing machine may not be working because it is blocked. Determine whether you have any objects blocking the washer’s door, lid, or console. Additionally check for clothing and other items blocking the internal drain hose. If any blockages exist, remove them and attempt to operate the machine again.

If the machine is still not working, you may need to reset it. To reset the LG washer, start by unplugging the machine for 5 minutes and then plug it back in. Then press and hold the POWER (Start/Reset) button for 3 seconds, or until the power LED lights up and release it. Your washing machine should now be reset and be ready to use again.

One of the common causes for LG washing machines not working properly is that the water supply has been interrupted. To check if there is an issue with your water supply, check the valve behind your washer to make sure it’s open and that there isn’t a kink in the hose. If everything looks okay, it’s possible that there is an issue with your water pressure which you should get checked out by a professional.
